What is a BID?


Yorkshire Coast Bird

There are more than 180 UK Business Improvement Districts (BIDs). They have proven to be a very effective way in which businesses can take control and improve their trading environment.

Through the Yorkshire Coast BID, over £5 million will be invested in projects aimed at increasing the profile of the Yorkshire Coast as a unique destination. The projects will aim to impact footfall, length of stay and visitor spend over the next 5 years.

To find out more about the different projects check out the Yorkshire Coast BID Business Plan.

Importantly, the BID is managed and governed by local businesses – just like yours – throughout the Yorkshire Coast area. To learn how you can become involved, please visit our Get Involved section.
